Archaeology Walks in the Peak District

Archaeology Walks in the Peak District

by: Ali Cooper
Time Travel - in the Peak District! How did people live thousands of years ago? Why were stone circles built? What kind of people built castles, hillforts and richly decorated burial sites? Forget about dusty old history books. Put on your walking boots, enjoy the superb scenery of the Peak district and enjoy a roller-coaster ride through history with Ali Cooper. Archaeology is like flower spotting, but more fun, because it's about people. With the help of this book, you'll soon recognise the rich heritage of early mankind to be found throughout the Peak District.
Routes range from 3 to 12 miles and are fully illustrated. To set the scene, there's an introduction to the study of archaeology and a glossary of the terminology used. Brief descriptions of the major finds on the walks are included, plus a bibliography for those who want to delve deeper. Ali Cooper has an MA in archaeology and is a keen outdoor enthusiast, the ideal guide to your time-travel walks.
